Born Lee Ji-hye, she used the stagename "Han Ji-hye" upon learning that her real name would cause confusion among fans with an older actress, Lena Lee, who has the same Korean name as Han.
There has been speculation among fans that Han is Lee Dong-gun's girlfriend, mostly based on the fact that they are frequently seen together in publicity photographs.
Both of them vehemently deny this alleged relationship, but the couple was later confirmed when they announced it individually on their websites. They have since broken up.
In 2008, she was invited (along with Leon Jay Williams) to sing both the Chinese and the Korean version of the theme song of the Beijing National Aquatics Centre of the Beijing Olympics.
On August 5, 2010, it was announced that she would be getting married to her boyfriend of 2 years.
